HVA Welcomes University of Nevada Manufacturing Process Class
On Friday, October 16, HVA welcomed over 40 University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) students to our facility. The students (all of whom are Mechanical Engineering majors currently enrolled in UNR’s Manufacturing Process course), were given an overview of HVA’s current product line of vacuum valves and related components as well as a discussion of HVA’s key market segments. They also received a tour of HVA’s 60,000 square foot facility including a demonstration of HVA’s state of the art equipment. At the end of the tour the students discussed HVA’s manufacturing process with key members of our staff.
HVA’s President, Victor Brenes, described the event as benefiting both the students and HVA. “This is the second year we’ve worked with UNR on this event and we plan to continue doing so into the future. UNR is just down the road from our facility and several of our engineers are graduates of its Mechanical Engineering Program. The University provides a great resource for us and we, in turn, want to do our part to help prepare the next generation of American manufacturers.”
